checking a new toggle that will stop discussions from being renewed from the archive even when a new message is received.The function, once it appears, can be changed on from the archive screen or by heading to Settings > Chats.Once enabled, the archive area will be moved from the bottom of the chat list to the top for easier access, although this may get in the way somewhat.The feature was spotted in WhatsApp beta 2.21.11.1, but it’s a server-side rollout so it will not be extensively available till it is presented worldwide.
